Overview
Unless you speak Russian, St. Petersburg can be a difficult city to navigate on your own. Make the most of your time in Russia’s second city during a 2-day tour that provides an ideal introduction to first-time visitors. Plus, hotel or port pickup and drop-off on each day ensures you don’t have to worry about finding a meeting point.
